chantel + andrew
mayan riviera, mexico

Recently, I was at the H10 Hotel in Puerto Morelos photographing Britton + Lex’s wedding, and Chantel, one of Britton’s bridesmaids, approached me to ask about photographing her and Andrew in a couple’s session (like an engagement shoot without the engaged part of it – just in case there was any confusion haha). Chantel and Andrew have only been dating for a few months, but when its right, its right, and it was easy to see that they were definitely smitten.  We started the session a bit flustered – a misread ferry schedule parlayed into a late start for the shoot, but Chantel and Andrew were cool as cucumbers, not phased at all.  The late start actually turned out to be a blessing in disguise; we were graced with amazing soft light for the majority of the shoot – the kind of light that we just don’t see here in Canada.  It was a beautiful afternoon, and the shoot ended with Chantel + Andrew throwing themselves into the ocean fully clothed.  They were too much fun, and once again prove that we have the best clients.

A special thanks to Megan Strating who was a second shooter extraodinaire during the week, was my memory and organizer for the week, and enjoyed her first-ever dip in the ocean.
